Okay, so I noticed some friends mentioning something called Pinterest. I checked it out, and now I'm hooked! Who knew it would be so much fun to put together pictures of things that I find interesting, for all different reasons. And who knew that someone else re-pins one of my pins would be such a hoot! I love looking at other's boards, too. It's like checking out collections of things that I might never have had the chance to see otherwise, and how cool is that. I'm not a suburban Mom, I live in a rural area, and I don't scrapbook. I'm not even big into Facebook. But for some reason, Pinterest is cooler than I ever could have guessed it could be. Check out my boards here. http://pinterest.com/fadedlily/

I started last night sorting through all the WIP that have been lurking around, some beside my chair, in my knitting bag, in my bedroom, etc and so on. What I found out is I've developed a bad habit of not finishing things that I've started! I think I'll try making a list of all these poor abandoned WIP and then hopefully get as many done as possible. It would seem that my spring cleaning this year should consist primarily of organizing and doing an inventory of my stash, (as it's out of control and spilling out everywhere), and doing the same with my WIP. I do have a few things that I have managed to finish over the last little bit. The first pictures are of a shawl I made with Lion Brand Woolease Thick and QuickYarn in Lemongrass. The bottom pictures are of a sweater that I made for my Mom. I started with a pattern I thought looked really great, but I ended up changing practically everything about it. But I think it turned out pretty well and my Mom does like it, and really that is all that matters. It was made with Tatamy Tweed by Kraemer Yarns, the color is Silver. The lace pattern on the front panels is Lily of the Valley, one of my favorites. So I do have at least a couple of projects that aren't WIP, now to roll up my sleeves and start work on the rest.....
